Each of our trucks now has a thermal imaging camera that will aid in the installation of the safest radon mitigation system. Each of our technicians has been trained on the proper usage of this high tech device.
The thermal imaging camera will be used in the following situations during installation of a radon mitigation system:
- To identify radiant heat lines buried in the floor, avoiding costly damage to them when we are coring through the floor
- To identify radiant heat lines buried in the floor when performing pre-mitigation diagnostics (PFE) testing and sub-slab grab sampling.
- To help identify mechanical, plumbing and electrical lines behind walls.
- During exterior exhaust installation, to help Identify structural members when attaching fasteners in order to provide the strongest possible connection to the building.
The thermal imaging camera also aids in the design during an onsite consultation. During the initial onsite consultation, we will be able to identify the location of the structural member(s), so that the exact exterior exhaust location(s) can be located, helping our client understand the location and appearance of the radon reduction system. This step will help eliminate risk of unnecessary fire and/or water damage or excessive holes in the siding.
Usage of new technology, such as a thermal imaging camera, improves system performance and eliminates risks such as fire and water damage.
This photo shows what we see when we use our thermal imaging camera to identify a radiant heat system. We can clearly see the location of the radiant heat lines so we can avoid drilling where they are located.
